FarmMOJO

by Aquaconnect

FarmMojo is a machine learning based mobile application that helps shrimp farmers achieve more sustainable farming practices through data. FarmMoJo helps farmers to achieve maximum efficiency by regulating the feed inputs, early diseases prediction, timely actions and reducing the operational costs.

The Challenge

Challenge area: Novel technology

Aquaculture farming involves a number of risks and issues - from fish feed supply, quality of water, to fish diseases - which results in a higher production cost. With a lack of data, most aquaculture farmers have to deal with inefficiency during farming which can lead to a loss in production, income loss, and unsustainable farming practices. In addition, a lack of transparency and accessibility from the existing marketplace further reduces shrimp farmers’ profit margins and their ability to implement improvements to their farming practices.

The Innovation

Stage of development: Pilot

FarmMojo is a machine learning based mobile application that helps shrimp farmers achieve more sustainable farming practices through data. FarmMoJo helps farmers to achieve maximum efficiency by regulating the feed inputs, early diseases prediction, timely actions and reducing the operational costs.

In addition, FarmMOJO could resolve traceability issues among seafood consumers who prefer sustainably farmed seafood by providing end to end information. It provides information starting from pond preparation to inputs throughout the cycle and connection to the indigenous markets and exporters after the harvest.
